Ackley Bridge

Series 1 - Episode 6



Everybody’s been instructed to be on their best behaviour because it’s the multi-cultural school’s open day, which in soap terms means that if there’s a fan nearby, something unpleasant is going to be hitting it. And it does.

Sadiq Nawaz’s daughter Alya is primed to give a stirring speech about integration – but it causes a stir for all the wrong reasons. The fallout is massive. Meanwhile, after finding out who is the father of Candice’s baby, Jordan goes off the rails – and takes Chloe with him. Not all the loose ends are neatly tied up. Some are left dangling very untidily but there’s no news about a second series yet.


Mandy's personal and professional lives collide with one another when Alya reveals her and Sadiq's affair at the school's first Open Day. As Mandy fights for her job, but chooses to put her pupils before her career, Steve comes to her rescue. Will it be enough to repair their relationship? Meanwhile, Candice discloses the true identity of Jamie's father, leading Jordan to spiral out of control. Chloe gets caught up in Jordan's plans to leave Ackley Bridge, only for them to fall foul of the police. Last in the series.
